The holiday season is one of the best times of the year to be beauty-obsessed: each and every party is an opportunity to try out a new and dramatic beauty look! But what about those days during the festive period that you spend indoors with family, decking the halls? If you're after some holiday makeup inspiration without all of the glitz and glam, we've selected three barely there beauty looks straight from the runway!
Here they are...
Rather than the traditional black kohl pencil or liquid liner, this graphic cat eye is created using sheer charcoal eyeshadow. To get the look, start by applying a lightweight base, followed by eyeshadow primer on each eyelid. Use an angled brush to create the cat eye, which should cover your eyelids and extend out toward the brow. Fill in your brows, then finish the look with a pale pink tinted balm.
For a luminous glow, start your look by applying radiance primer, followed by a light layer of BB cream. Use CC concealer over any blemishes/imperfections. Use our tutorial to apply your eyeshadow in a "halo effect", blending well to avoid any harsh edges. Finally, finish the look with a slick of hydrating lip gloss.
Want to look like it's the middle of summer and you've just been eating wild raspberries? Try this "bitten" look! Unify your complexion with a matte foundation and then add a wash of color to each cheek with pale pink powder blush. Apply plum eyeshadow to your eyelids and along the bottom lashline, then blend it out. Finish by applying raspberry-hued lip stain to your lips, tapping the color in with your finger for the most natural results.
So, which one will you try?
